Australia Post announces new $50M Queensland facility

Australia Post is significantly boosting its investment in Queensland by committing over $50 million to build a cutting-edge parcel facility at the Brisbane Airport Industrial Park.

Expected to open in early 2026, this state-of-the-art StarTrack Premium facility will reportedly be the second largest sorting facility in Queensland.

With South East Queensland’s population expected to increase to over six million by 2032, Australia Post said the strategic investment will ensure it has the right infrastructure in place to meet the projected eCommerce growth across the region.

Australia Post Group CEO and Managing Director, Paul Graham, said the construction of the new facility highlights Australia Post’s commitment to investing in infrastructure that supports the changing needs of its customers and the growth of its business.

“Queensland continues to experience year-on-year eCommerce growth, with 82 per cent of Queenslanders making an online purchase in the past year,” he said.

“This new parcel facility will help us respond to that demand and deliver parcels to customers’ doors sooner.”

The Brisbane North Parcel Facility will not only increase Australia Post’s operational footprint, but will also complement its modernisation and regional capacity network program, with 39 network operations sites upgraded in the past 12 months.

“Conveniently located adjacent to Brisbane Airport, this new facility will be able to process up to 176,000 parcels per day in addition to improving team member safety by reducing touch points and manual handling thanks to the installation of both a large and small parcel sorter, each equipped with integrated X-ray screening,” Graham said.

“Our delivery team will also benefit from being closer to delivery catchments, reducing their on-road time and ultimately improving services for our customers throughout South East Queensland.”

Brisbane Airport CEO, Gert-Jan de Graaff, said this will be the largest industrial project ever constructed at Brisbane Airport.

“By providing Australia Post with direct airside access, we’re streamlining the delivery of time- sensitive parcels, benefitting millions of Queenslanders in the South East and regional areas of the state,” he said.

“We’re proud to develop projects that enable Queensland to grow and connect to the world.”
